    Other football - 2020/21

    Looks like there will be no teams from Liverpool in the top four this year then?

    Its true. Its a good sign because it means that he is not thinking of leaving. We need to sign players that are hungry to succeed and push us back up the league table and in to the Champions League. We can't afford any mercenaries here.

    Its no exaggeration that the thought would never have crossed his mind!

    Last season we didn't have many injuries. This year we have and we haven't reacted well to them both on and off the field. If Jota had got injured in a game that we needed to get a result from then so be it, but it was stupid to risk him and Salah in a meaningless game. Especially considering Klopp was heavily slating the fixture schedule at that point. We should have played the kids in that one and left the first team at home. Jota wasn't just our 4th choice either, he was pushing to take the place of either Mane or Firmino at that point. I think there are a number of problems. We lack a voice and leadership without VVD, Henderson or Milner, and Milner looks to be really struggling with the pace of the game now. TAA and Robertson don't look the same players without the defensive shield in the centre and both are better going forward than they are defensively.

    Matip started that game with Fabinho and we had Henderson in midfield. Minamino started the FA Cup game against the Villa under 18's and looked weaker than most of their team!

    Yes it is a squad management issue. The reality is that Phillips, Williams, Kabak, Davies aren't very good players, certainly not good enough for a top four Premier League team. Gomez played 42 games last season. Matip played 30+ every season until last season. We gambled on VVD not getting injured this year and that has failed spectacularly. I agree its not the only issue. Mane and Firmino have been poor for most of the season. Playing Jota in a dead rubber game was unbelievably fucking stupid. Allison has been injured, then Kelleher gets injured! Everyting that could possibly have gone wrong has gone wrong this season.

    We've lost the spine of the team this season. We've gone from having VVD and Gomez at centre half with Fabinho and Henderson in front of them doing the defensive work required to get the best out TAA and Robertson. Over the last two seasons we found a system that worked perfectly with the players we had. I think we all knew that it was a very fragile team though that was only 2 or 3 injuries away from struggling. If we had only lost VVD this year, I think we'd be second right now. Behind City, but ahead of the rest. Matip and Gomez at centre back with Fabinho and Henderson in front of them would have been fine. It's no coincidence that the more defensive players we have lost, the more games we have lost. As far anyone wanting Klopp out, who the fuck is going to do a better job next year with no Champions League football on offer and the usual sell to buy first transfer budget?

    RB Leipzig (H) Champions League - 10/3/21

    Nice of UEFA to step in and remove the game from Anfield to stop us losing there again!

    Relegation form. If we'd started the season like that we'd be 19th.

    Fulham (H) PL - Sun 7th Mar 2021 at 14:00

    Davies is either injured or nowhere near good enough. I doubt we signed him to sell on for a profit as we will struggle to make any money on a player we don't play! Not bringing in at least one half decent centre back on the first day of the January window has crippled us badly here. We will never achieve consistent success as long as they are in charge.

    Fulham (H) PL - Sun 7th Mar 2021 at 14:00

    I think we can safely say that this game proves that our problems are a lot bigger than Thiago, or not playing Henderson/Fabinho in midfield. 6 home defeats in a row. 7 in 10 in league games.

    Ben Davies

    Welcome to Liverpool.

    Will everything be okay next season?

    For all the talk of VVD, Gomez and Matip coming back next season, we are going to have to be careful with them and they will take a while to get back up to speed. People expecting Vvd just to waltz up and immediately be one of the best defenders in the world again are in for a shock. We need to ensure that we have a new centre half ready for the start of next season.

    Picking at the relegation carcass

    We were vaguely linked with Sander Berge before he joined Sheffield United. He hasn't exactly set the world alight for them but might be worth another look?

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

    Maddison is a good player but seems a bit injury prone. We've got enough of them.

    Ben Davies

    There must be some sort of voodoo curse on us? Maybe the penance of finally winning the title was that we'd have to defend it without any defenders?

    Summer 2021 transfer thread.

    Finances are incredibly tight for most clubs, so players with a bad injury record will be seen as too risky even on a pay as you play deal.

    Sheffield Utd (A) PL - Sun 28th Feb 2021 at 19:15

    Yeah he's been injured for a while now. Not been on the bench recently.

    That was only rock bottom. We can still hit rock rock bottom.

    So it's our 3rd choice keeper in goals and our 7th and 8th choice centrebacks? What could possibly go wrong!
  21. We improved significantly after Coutinho left. Even though he did score some good goals he blazed it high and wide more often than not. I think you're right, we play percentages now and the data shows that a much higher percentage of goals are scored inside the area than out, which is why we don't shoot from range very often. Our main problem this season has been out lack of threat in the air. We have no height in the team anymore.
  22. How he qualifies as a football journalist is beyond me. I could count on one hand the number of times Balague has got something right!
  23. He's said in the past that he had spoken to Rafa for advice. He said that playing under Woy was awkward.

    Rangers/Stevie Gerrard 2020/21

    It feels inevitable he will go on to manage us now. I know it's only the Scottish League, but it's the way they have won it that's impressive. They have also done very well in the Europa League in two consecutive seasons. Initially I was against the idea, but now I feel confident that Gerrard could do a really good job as manager here.

    Coronavirus

    People are going to go fucking nuts this Summer, I can just sense it from what I see on social media. I know it's F******l related but if the whole of the Euros gets moved to this country then it's going to be one big drunken free for all from June onwards.
